VOLLEYBALL: Cards take down Hawks 3-0


The NIC volleyball team matched up with the Columbia Basin College Hawks on Wednesday, Oct. 16 on their home court. The Hawks, who are currently ranked sixth in the conference, came out strong against the Cardinals and didn’t back down. The Cardinals and Hawks battled the first set back and forth until the Cardinals pulled away at the end with a win.

In the second set, the Cardinals came out slow and found themselves down the whole time until the last two points of the match when Elise McCammond stepped in and served two aces to give the Cardinals a win.

After intermission, the Cardinals stepped on the court and were able to put the pressure quickly on the Hawks and finished the night with a sweep. Journey Tupea led in kills with 11 and Hannah McPhetridge not too far behind with 10. Kynzey Mitzel once again led the team in digs with a total of 21 and Hokulea Vargas had 39 assists.

“We struggled last night. It definitely was not our prettiest win, but we will take it. We need to start realizing that these teams will not be the same teams we played first round; everyone is getting better and we need to be able to step on the floor and compete,” said NIC Volleyball Head Coach Kelsey Stanley.

The Cardinals take on the Walla Walla Warriors Friday, Oct. 18 in Walla Walla, Wash. The Cardinals have yet to beat the Warriors on their home court since they have made the transition into the NWAC. The Cards are hoping to break that curse on Friday.

Final Scores: 25-19, 25-13, 25-13
